A command-line password manager based around GnuPG

gpgpwd is a terminal-based password manager.

It stores a list of passwords and their associated usernames in a GnuPG-encrypted file, and allows you to easily retrieve, change, and add to that file as needed.

It also generates random passwords which you can use, easily allowing you to have one “master password” (for your GPG key), with one unique and random password for each website or service you use, ensuring that your other accounts stay safe even if one password gets leaked. gpgpwd can also utilize Git to allow you to easily synchronize your passwords between different machines.
